What this Abba Patio Outdoor Canopy Cover Hanging Swing Hammock is about
It is a bit difficult to give a short definition of what this structure is. Perhaps it is best to describe it as a self-supporting hanging hammock-cot hybrid with its own enclosure. What makes it ‘hybrid’ is the following:
- It swings like the usual hammock.
- At the same time, it has a wide frame like a camping cot.
- But the side poles are not straight as you normally have in cots, they are curved.
So it is a sort of a suspended collapsible cot. This means it has many elements (around 38 in total, see the list below) that need to be assembled, you can see them in this manual. This is done without any extra tool and without brute force. You will probably need one hour or so when you do this for the first time.
Materials & elements
As mentioned above, there is a lot of stuff here, but it can be divided into three sub-groups:
- The freestanding frame with its elements.
- The bed, with its own frame, fabric, and attachment elements.
- The enclosure elements (the net and the roof).
The frame tubes are incredibly thick powder-coated rust-resistant steel, the diameter is 42 mm and the thickness is 1.3 mm. The zoomed view below shows that you have a rectangular frame on the ground, so it will not sink easily no matter where you use it. There are also some plastic feet that will come good if you use it on a flat and hard surface.
The same thickness tubes are used for the bed’s frame, just the difference here is that the side poles are curved. The bed attaches to the main frame with chains covered with plastic:
The bed’s fabric is Textilene, a sort of polyester standardly used for garden furniture. It is lightweight, weather-resistant, easy to maintain, and durable.
The net attaches to the roof and to the frame, you have Velcro tabs for this. One the side it can be completely unzipped and rolled up and fixed in place with toggles, see the picture.
The net will save you from flying insects, it goes all the way to the ground. But crawling insects can certainly get in. Note that you do not have to use the net if you do not need it.
The roof is a water-resistant polyester but not strictly waterproof. It is a bit narrow so it provides shade but it should be much wider. It is easily removable.
Who is it for
Regarding the bed size, I have seen people asking if this is large enough for two people, so the answer is no. You can see its most important dimensions in the picture below. As you realize, the bed is very wide, you have 3.7 ft (113 cm), lots of space to sprawl.
Regarding the weight capacity, the same holds, this is for one person. The official capacity is 300 lb (136 kg). I am surprised that it is not more, it looks incredibly strong and stable.
Regarding the weight & packed size, you will see the numbers below, so this is a heavy and bulky product, it is best to have somebody to help you with it.
Regarding the price, I think it is fair for what you have here.

User Review( votes)
So to conclude this Abba Patio Outdoor Canopy Cover Hanging Swing Hammock review, what you have here is a very functional and incredibly comfortable outdoor product. It is freestanding and it offers sunshade and flying insects protection.
But it is very heavy and bulky, and you would not want to move it and assemble/disassemble frequently. I have included it in my list of best folding hammocks, but this is more than just a hammock. Fully recommended.
